Let’s start and say the music 🎵 was great...... it was nice see an older crowd which were enjoying themselves......it was a shame that it wasn’t that busy 😔 now let’s get on to the venue it wasn’t great ❓❓❓I reminded me of the my old Rave days ... it was Cold 🥶 the bar was poorly stocked. The toilets well let’s just say WTF it was like something out of the 1800 s I was looking for the Rats 🐀. I hope they have it again but not at the biscuit factory ‼

What an amazing venue, plenty of space to dance around, the music was fantastic 10/10 to all the DJs that played. The atmosphere was amazing and I didn't feel like the oldest swinger in town.
The only disappointment was the bar management the girls were far to slow at serving drinks resulting in the que being longer than it should have been. apart from that great night x

Love this band, they are amazing! Saw them at Shiiine On a few years ago and so happy they came to Edinburgh. They are not to be missed if you're a Roses fan.
HOWEVER, I was really disappointed to get to the door and hear I could've bought a ticket for four pounds cheaper than I paid via Skiddle. Can you please explain this discrepancy? Why should I bother going through this app to purchase tickets?

Great event, interesting to see designs, wish it had more promotion. I knew about it due to a neig*bour. Music was a bit high but very good tunes!

Really good venue, such a nice theme.
Drinks were a bit pricy for a Tuesday night, however it was a good range of drinks and high end alcohol. :)

I flew all the way out from Southern California to see this show. I thought the venue was great, the people were friendly. WWPJs rocked! It was a great experience all the way around!

Great band as always. Venue poor and did not appear particularly organised. Loos had no soap and ran put of toilet paper very quickly

The sound system obscured view for about 45%of the crowd. The view all around was poor unless you were about 6'3. The sound quality was much better outside & in the toilets. The bar seemed to struggle with the numbers of thirsty people. Band were good.

This venue has a lot of potential- the ambiance is industrial and unassuming- the sort of place you expect to turn out to be a gem. Unfortunately, the event I was at wasn’t a gem at all.

No one was allowed entry until 20 minutes after the advertised “doors open” time because “the bands were doing sound checks”. The venue was freezing - throughout the concert, there were people in wool caps, and many wore jackets in the pit. The bar staff hustled all night long, but their efforts were undercut by a bad layout, a questionable tap setup, and incorrect instructions about card payments. Getting a drink was a 10 minute affair which required wading through an inch of sticky beer on the floor due to the bottleneck corner placement. This would be excusable for a dive, if it weren’t for the exorbitant drink prices. £5 for a PBR... are you serious? The toilet was gross - there were no hand dryers or paper towels, so most who entered forwent hand washing entirely. About 2.5 hours after opening and perhaps 20 minutes of stage time from *any* live entertainment, the main act went on. This was the sole highlight of the night. There was no wifi to supplement the abysmal cell coverage inside during the downtime.

I’ve been to at least 25 different venues/shows and this was among the worst. I live nearby and desperately want Edinburgh to have a thriving music scene, but this night was exemplary of why we don’t.
